A Victorian fob of a dog sitting atop a dog house. A delicate chain once linked him to his kennel but he is now free. The house is a detailed replica of the real thing with engraved woodgrain and a dog bowl sitting just outside. His forelegs straddle the roof, while his hind quarters and tail curl up to the left. The base is affixed with bloodstone which, intentional or not, evokes the shape and color of a grassy knoll.
10k gold (tests), bloodstone, new 14k gold chain
1 1/8" length including the bale, 3/4" at the widest point, 18" chain
1837 — 1901
